    Custom Subwoofer Box

    I am looking to put 1 alpine type r 12inch (SWR1242D) in my own custom sub box, what do people think to these dimensions and would the reccomend me doing something different. the major constraint is really a depth of about 11 inches

    Height: 14 inches
    Width: 19 inches
    Depth: 9inches

    Total Volume : 1.38 ft^3

    Any suggestions guys

    Thanks
    Richard

    If you want sealed that should be ok but I would go ported if you had the room.

    ok, so what does spl and sq mean, my mate reckons its sound placement and sound quality, if so, what are the differences.

    your options are gonna be going sealed or going down to 10 inch sub from a 12 if you want to be ported. I would recommend a new sundown sa-8 ported in that kind of space.
